You know your Ables from your Bakers from your C's, but can your finely tuned ears differentiate the cosmic "comeback" tour from a spacey 70's show? Each day we'll post a free download from one of the Dead's coveted shows. Will it be from that magical night at Madison Square Garden in '93 or from way back when they were just starting to warm it up at Winterland? Is that Pigpen's harmonica we hear? Brent on keys? Step right up and try your hand.
Each day, the first person to guess the venue & date correctly will get a Road Trips of their choice.

10. "So Many Roads" (Soldier Field, Chicago, July 9, 1995 - what would be the Grateful Dead's final show. Note that the few seconds of the Jerry Garcia solo guitar intro heard here were taken from an earlier performance, and that Garcia's first attempt at the final verse (which he sang twice) and a second solo have been eliminated.)
...I turn off those options on any application I use. I don't use iTunes but I've got it turned off on Winamp and WMP. Just me being paranoid, but you never know where personal information is being stored or to what use it may be put, and I don't trust anybody's ability to keep whatever data may be transmitted and stored, secure. Even if it's just song titles, or album art, or what I have looked at on Amazon, or what I've googled, or Facebooked, or typed in a comment on dead.net for that matter. Just not comfortable with it.
It's just a matter of time until Big Uncle decides to make the companies turn over all that information anyway, in the interest of "national security", you know, to "protect us from the terrorists".
I put 7/9/95 as the answer for So Many Roads but I think I was too late! I was confused because the opening riff is different from that show. Oh well... this awesome site is the greatest procrastination tool in the universe! :)
The new songs that were written/co-written by Jerry Garcia for what would have been their next studio album were all great. Lazy River Road, Liberty and SMRs were all great tunes. I had mixed feelings about some of the other band members new songs though, like Corrina, Eternity, East Answers, Way To Go Home, Samba In The Rain, Wave To The Wind, Childhoods End and If The Shoe Fits.
just haven't been able to get any of that good smoke some people have talked about on here, fired up waiting for the new song of the day, so I'm not as paranoid right now as I could/should be. hehe. RT 2:2 2/14/68 Viola Lee Blues Baby!!
Thanks evryone, now at least I know I'm not insane and my computer is:) Thanks for clearing up the confusion with the time frames, Glad someone else's computer thought it needed to download pics too:)

We were saying this back when the internet was being born ;-)
Does anyone have a favorite song they are hoping Dead.net will release next? I really would like a Help on the way/slip/Franklin's
Anybody else have something they are dying for an unrelased version of?
I am wondering if maybe we post dead.net will read them and take the hint :)
I may have gotten lucky this morning.... I will find out Friday... But if I did, I will list the method... used, which could make the Grateful Dead Jeopardy, more multi-dimensional....
So is it time for Space> ? or Drums>Space>?
They've GOT TO HAVE AT LEAST ONE. It would be a heinous omission to not have one. A big MONSTER one. Mark your calendars, they'll save it for last. Somebody needs to light a fire under somebody else and get Infrared Roses II (ULTRAVIOLET ROSES!) made as well.
Now, about "A Jerry Little Christmas": I figure if they set it up for 12 Days of Garcia (at this late date I'm forgetting about a Pure Jerry Xmas release...for now) and they start the party on Dec. 6 (Mon.) then the thirteenth download day (yup, a little Bolty prank there) would be Dec. 18 (Sat.) and leave Christmas week open since everybody will be busy traveling and stuff.
Contest? OK. Name the show and get your pick of a Jerry release, and just have one big winner for the whole thing - All Good Things seems reasonable.
